Creating a future without youth homelessness
Creating a future without youth homelessness
Yfoundations is the peak body organisation representing youth homelessness in Australia
Yfoundations CEO writes to new Minister - Earlier today Yfoundations CEO, Dr Michael Coffey, wrote to the incoming Federal Minister for Social Services. He welcomed Scott Morrison to his new role, but expressed deep concern over the cuts to the funding of national peak homelessness and housing bodies, and urged that the decision be reconsidered.
Government withdraws funding to national homelessness and housing community organisations - Yfoundations is deeply disappointed at the news that funding is to be withdrawn from Homelessness Australia, National Shelter and the Community Housing Federation of Australia. These cuts are a false economy in that they damage important work by far more than the money retrieved.

Screen Shot 2014-12-10 at 8.41.52 am Government (and charities) must acknowledge that housing is a right, not a privilege - Housing is unassailably a right. Personally I think it is a common sense moral position that everyone has the right to a place they can call home. But this is not just my view, housing is explicitly made a right by article 11 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights; a treaty which 162 of the world’s countries are party to - including Australia.
